Cork’s only dog café is throwing a Halloween party for kids and canines next week and it’s shaping up to be the most adorable bash of the season.
Hallowoof begins on October 20th at Bark & Bumble Dog Cafe on Langford Row (opposite Paddy the Farmer’s).
The furry fun runs throughout the spookiest month of the year until October 31st.
That means we have eleven days of doggie Halloween costumes, themed treats and fun games to enjoy every time we pop in for a lattes or a cappuccino.
Get practicing because word has it there will be free sweets for kids and free treats for pups who call to the store and bark “Trick or treat!”
On weekdays, a €5 Rocky Horror and Haunted Hot Chocolate and a Creepy Mocktail will be added to the menu for little monsters and dogs can enjoy Pumpkin Spice Pawscotti with their Pupspresso drink.
On weekends and during the school holiday from the 27th through the 31st, Bark & Bumble’s official face painter is in-store to do FREE face painting (anything but cats) from 10am to noon.
But in all honestly, what we’re most excited about is the October Bank Holiday Monday Fancy Dress Contest – open to all dogs at 2pm.
On Tuesday at 2pm there’s a Homemade Dog Costume event; and on Halloween itself there’s a Pooch & Person Halloween costume showdown for dogs and human pairs.
We’re already prepping our looks.
Check out the Bark & Bumble for the full schedule.
